Great milkshake?

drcmk Jun 24, 2011 05:29 AM

Any suggestions for a great milkshake? We are staying in Marigny if you happen to know anything close. But we'll travel for something very good.

    OP here. We ended up getting shakes from Creole Creamery. Yum. We still talk about that place weeks later.

      Creole Creamery in Uptown is outstanding.

          Not sure about shakes but CC has the best malts anywhere.

            MVB serves great shakes made with Sucre gelato. I suggest going to Sucre for one.

                I would bet that cc is creole creamery.

              I don't remember as i don't pay much attention to "sweets" but I would think Ihe American Zone at the WWII museum would have quality soda fountain offerings.

                Americn Sector's shakes are awful, and should be skipped.

                CC's are good, not great

                Stanley's are quite good, and very close to where you are staying.

                Camelia Grill's chocolate freeze is similar to a frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity, and is very refreshing.

                Tru burger approach MVB, but I still think MVB are a smidge better.

                  just back from American Sector and i can concur -- three of us all agreed their shakes are weak. small, melt-y. would not get again.

                    Stanley shakes definitely don't have that problem.

                Dunno about great, but Tru burger on Oak has milkshakes, as does the Milk Bar on Delachaise (or is it Aline?). And the mocha freeze at Camellia Grill isn't technically a milkshake, but it is quite tasty. Doesn't Stanley have shakes?

                  Yes. Stanley does have shakes, and they are thick, rich, and delicious!

                      Also should have mentioned the boozy grownup shakes at Sucre.
